The View’s Joy Behar felt the need to defend President Joe Biden for laughing at atrocious jokes during the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night. Watch:
“They do not laugh unless you’re talking about them,” Behar said.
“I also was impressed with Joe Biden, his response to the material which you were pointed out, Ana, and it was funny stuff, but when they were trashing him or roasting him rather, he was laughing his head off, which shows you that he’s mentally stable as opposed to years ago if you remember when Obama took a shot — a joke at Trump, this is the response,” Behar said. “Look, there is the difference.”

“Yes,” Ana Navarro replied.
This may be one of the most unintentionally hysterical bits on The View: Joe Biden is “mentally stable” compared to Donald Trump? That’s a laugher.
Donald Trump gave regular press conferences where he answered any and all questions — without notes. He did not wander around aimlessly and need his wife to rescue him. And he did not shake hands with imaginary people.
Hunter Biden even confirmed to a therapist what the American people can see for themselves: His presidential father has senile dementia. Joe Biden also appears to be extremely tone-deaf.
While Americans are suffering due to the Biden administration’s incompetent policies, which have fueled higher gas prices, food prices, and threaten to suck the nation into a European war, the president was yucking it up at their expense on Saturday night.
Daily Show host Trevor Noah, who calls himself a comedian, was the host of the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night. At one point, he made an inflation joke that caused Biden to guffaw. Watch:
“Ever since you came into office, things are already looking up,” Noah said in his remarks. “Gas is up, rent is up, food is up.”
Joe Biden couldn’t contain his laughter. But Noah told a joke that might even be more insulting.
“Please be careful leaving tonight,” Noah said told the attendees heading for the exits. “We all know this administration doesn’t handle evacuations well.”
Tommy Pigott, the rapid response director for the Republican National Committee, responded to the clip on Twitter by saying that “13 people died trying to save people from his mistakes.”
Biden also seemed to think it was funny that he has such low approval ratings. But he gave himself way too much credit: The president has maintained a record-low 33 percent approval for nearly a month.
“Special thanks to the 42 percent of you that actually applauded,” Biden joked in front of approximately 2,000 journalists and celebrities at the Washington Hilton.
“I’m really excited to be here tonight with the only group of Americans with a lower approval rating than I have,” he added.
Biden also cracked a joke about Republicans who “seem to support some guy named Brandon,” a reference to the “Let’s Go Brandon” insult. “He’s having a really good year. And I’m happy for him!”
Too bad the American people suffering under Biden’s policies can’t say the same.
